DEVM 548 - Market, Society & State
This seminar seeks to illuminate what could be called the Liberal vision for the future: free markets and democracy. We begin by reading Fukuyama who argues that liberal values have won throughout the world at century’s end, and then turn to selections from Kant and Smith–two eighteenth century philosophers who, more than any one else, set forth the liberal vision. Thereafter we will turn to Marx and finally, Tocqueville, who attempts to explicate the conditions under which enduring economic vitality may be achieved, and democracy fostered.
